How to register for Year 7 in 2021

Entry to Bournemouth School or Poole Grammar School in Year 7, September 2021

There is one set of selection tests for Bournemouth School, Bournemouth School for Girls, Parkstone Grammar School and Poole Grammar School (the 'Consortium').  This will save children whose parents wish them to be considered for admission to more than one selective school in the Consortium from taking multiple tests for those schools.

The tests will be taken at the school with whom the parent has registered their child.  All applicants to a Consortium School must complete a Registration Form to be eligible to sit the entrance tests.  Registration for on time applications has now closed.

Boys will sit the entrance tests on Saturday, 17 October 2020* at either Bournemouth School or Poole Grammar School.  The tests may only be taken once by any boy.  Details of the tests and arrangements for the day will be sent to parents and students by the 18 September 2020.  The results of the tests may be used to establish your son's eligibility for a place at both Bournemouth School and Poole Grammar School.

*Update:  08 September 2020

In response to Government guidance, we have requested a variation of our admission arrangements for 2021 to change the test date(s) from Saturday, 26 September 2020 to Saturday, 17 October 2020.  This decision is has been approved, and we will update this website as soon as we have a decision.

The deadline to register for the entrance by midday on Friday, 11 September 2020 will not change.
